    It seems that if you don't normally sell machinery you might think it a good idea to try selling a lathe finished with an attractive patination of Hammerite, Rust and Shite whilst at the same time pricing it several hundred pounds higher than some very nice looking examples of the same model.

    On the other hand they might actually be fairly smart and have worked out that it would look far worse clean :D
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Not a bad price for a Super 7 - the only cheaper one (ex-college, looking good) is on auction, not B-O, I'd expect any S7 to go for rather more than a grand. For anyone in the market it would be worth a look under the superficial surface grime - could be a good fixer-upper. The sellers look like they do house clearances - might be worth an inspection and a cheeky offer ("tssssk, chuck too small, mate, no live centre, 650 and I'm cutting my own throat")

    1000 for a heap of rust. myfords are very overrated. I used one like many others at collage and tech back in the 70,s. and when I went into model engineering purchased a myford because that was the lathe I knew. had a go on a mates Colchester bantam and the myford was gone the same week. o and my super 7 was like new and I sold it for 780 3 years back, the bantam also like new with power slides was 550 and worth it and more, a total joy to use and parting off is now a thing of joy.

    Ah, you have to know what you're looking for and check regularly, searching intelligently, I've had some real engineering bargains in the last few months ;-)

    the prick even sprayed the drill bit for gods sake. it makes me mad when these sort of people try to wreak my hobby by passing on junk like this.
